I have a sony kds-r50xbr1 and the problem is that it takes about 1 min to turn on and the screen appears for a bout 1-2 sec and then shuts off to a black screen where the power/standby blinks continuously...


Its time to replace lamp in this tv because existing lamp has reached to end of its working life span and causing problem. If lamp got broken, you will see lamp light lit on tv front but weaker lamp cause above symptoms.
Lamp replacement procedure is easy and written in user manual.
Buy Sony original lamp for good and bright picture in tv.
Thanks.

Sony kds-r50xbr1 turns itself off and then green light blinks 52


I too have a Sony KDS-R60XBR1 tv and the issue that you are experiencing is due to one of your fans in the rear of the tv is not working.  The tv automatically shuts off in protective mode.  Make sure the POWER/STANDBY light is blinking and not the lamp light below it.  Is the power/standby blinking 4 times in red? If, yes then its a fan that needs to be replaced.  If its the lamp light blinking then you need to replace the lamp.  The lamp is easy to replace by ordering the lamp either from Sony for $250 or find it cheaper for approx. $150 from other DLP sources and replace youself by following your manual.  I hope this helps you.

Need to change the bulb should I get the Sony 5100 or the Phillips or the Osram?


I have the KDS-R60XBR1 model and was told by Sony and Digital Lamp Seller you really want to replace your lamp bulb with only Certified Sony Replacement bulbs vs any aftermarket type bulbs.  I would prefer looking on the internet to find these bulbs if you don't want to purchase from the Sony site.  On the Sony site they are approx. $250 and I have seen these bulbs for $160 with the refurbished housing.  Or you can buy the buld only $90 - $120 and change it yourself and it will take you approx. 10 -15 minutes to complete this task.  Just make sure you do not touch the face of the bulb.  Good luck!

Cmon, read your manual, it specifically mentions 3 lights...

Means your lamp cover or lamp isn't secure...

Remove the lamp and insert it until you hear it lock into place and screw the lamp cover door tight...
